 Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said on Wednesday he would keep on pressing nations about their human rights records, even as a dispute with Saudi Arabia over criticism from Ottawa continued to escalate.

Trudeau also told reporters that Canadian Foreign Minister Chrystia Freeland had held a long conversation with her Saudi counterpart on Tuesday, but gave no details.

Saudi Arabia has frozen ties with Canada after it urged the release of jailed civil rights activists.
